Sahalie & Koosah Waterfall Wonders Hike

Amazing waterfall hikes in oregonExplore 3 key scenic points on the famous McKenzie River Trail

3 Great Hikes to choose from:
 
  • Clear Lake, Sahalie & Koosah Falls (Start at Clear Lake and hike to Carmen Smith diversion) approx 3 miles
  • Sahalie, Koosah & Tamolitch Blue Pool (Start just above Sahalie and hike down to Trailbridge) approx 6 miles
  • Clear Lake, Sahalie, Koosah & Tamolitch Blue Pool (Start at Clear Lake and hike down to Trailbridge) approx 9 miles

Each option is an easy to moderate hike with the main issue being the length of the hike.

Our Guide will Shuttle you to the appropriate start place and you will hike back to the end point where you car will be waiting.

Cost per person $30

We can create a number of custom hikes depending on what you are looking for. Our guides and shuttle drivers know all the access points to the gorgeous McKenzie River Trail and other great trails in the area.  (Please note that these are self guided - we do not hike the trail with you - rather we help you pick the perfect section of the trail, provide a map and help you get there.)

About Us:  We began offering mountain bikes and shuttles as a service to our guests who were having trouble sourcing a bike and a shuttle when traveling to ride the awesome McKenzie River Trail.  The nearest bike shop is about an hour away in Eugene, Oregon.  Our guests have been very helpful providing us feedback over the years and we now have the best selection of bikes that we have ever had.  We now have a part time bike tech and a limited selection of bike parts on hand.  We can order bike repair parts and can have new parts delivered often within 48 hours.  Please do keep in mind - we are not a full service bike shop.  We have limited staff hours so appointments are required.  That said, we are committed with helping with your bike needs as best we can.  For service and reservations call 541-822-6272  

If we don't have the bike you are looking, for we recommend Life Cycles Bike shop in Eugene 541-686-2994 (M-F 10-6, Sat 10-5)

Oregon's Premier Scenic Bike way - The McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242)

Seasonal Hwy open exclusively to road bikers and pedestrians at the opening of the season for just a few weeks.  This year the McKenzie Pass opens to cars on June 14th.  Now is the time to ride.  From Sister's Oregon to McKenzie Bridge!  

 

Another Epic Road Bike Gem - The Aufderheide (Hwy 19)

Considered by many to be Oregon's most beautiful stretch of scenic Hwy - this ride is one that you won't want to miss.  Recently uncovered as a "hidden gem" by bikers in the know.  This road gets very little road traffic and is capped on either end by some really special natural Hot Springs.  From Blue River to Oakridge.  This is also known as the "Over the Top" road bike event.

Bike Shuttles

McKenzie River Trail Shuttle

Daily at 9:30, 8:30 and 11 added if the 9:30 fills up 

See rates on the sidebar to the right

Details: We meet you at the bottom of the trail and take you to the top - or your desired starting point. 

 

McKenzie Pass - Hwy 242 (Road Bike) Shuttle

Daily on last McKenzie River Trail Shuttle

See rates on the sidebar to the right.

Details: We pick you up at bottom of ride in McKenzie Bridge area (McKenzie River Ranger Station, Along the Hwy or Belknap) and take you to the beginning of the ride Sisters where you begin the adventure back to your car. 

 

O'Leary Trail

Shuttle is available daily by appointment

See rates on the sidebar to the right

Details: This awesome trail has 2 starting options.  The standard one is at the Olallie trail head.  This starting point has about 3 miles of solid climbing.  The second starting point is at Horse Pasture Mountain and cuts the climbing significantly.  

Either way, you should be a solid intermediate rider to tackle this trail.  If you are not up to the entire O'Leary Trail you may want to consider doing King Castle, which is the last 1/2 of the O'Leary and has little climbing and a fast, fun swoopy downhill at the end.  I would suggest this for green riders but its definitely a good choice for newer riders with some experience under their belts. 

 

Aufderheide - Hwy 19 (Road Bike)

Shuttle is available daily by appointment

See rates on the sidebar to the right

Details: We can pick up or drop off in Oakridge.  we usually suggest dropping you of as this is easier to schedule and will have you riding back to your vehicle (no waiting for a pick up at the end of a long ride).  We can also drop off at different points along the way to shorten the ride or eliminate some (or most of the climb).  We can also move your vehicle from campsite to campsite if you want to do a camp and ride experience.  (There are many campsites along the way.)
